Power Book II: Ghost season 2 release date: When will it air?

The brand new episodes will premiere on STARZ on Sunday, November 21. The news was announced in the teaser trailer, which you can watch below.

Power Book II: Ghost season 2 cast: Who's in it?

The cast is as follows:

  • Tariq (Michael Rainey Jr)
  • Monet (Mary J Blige)
  • Cooper (Shane Johnson)
  • Brayden (Gianni Paolo)
  • Tameika (Quincy Tyler Bernstine)
  • Mecca (Daniel Sunjata)
  • Diana (LaToya Tonodeo)
  • Dru (Lovell Adams-Gray)
  • Carrie (Melanie Liburd)
  • Zeke (Daniel Bellomy)
  • Lauren (Paige Hurd)
  • Cane (Woody McClain)

Chatting to Complex about his character, McClain said: "When it comes to Cane, he's all about family. His thing is family first. I don't care what I'm going through, I'm going to make sure my family is good. That's something that I can relate to in real life. I don't care, I'll make sure everybody in my family has a car before I even buy myself one. I'm always putting my family first. So, that's how [I think about] every role that I take on—I make sure that I can relate to it on a personal and real level.

Berto Colon, who plays Lorenzo Tejada, has been promoted to a series regular. According to TV Line, he will lock horns with Monique regarding the running of the business and keeping their children out of harm's way.

"Lorenzo becomes intrigued by some secrets Monet has been keeping from him – and a conflict grows that threatens to split the Tejada family in two," reads the official statement.

Paton Ashbrook, who features as prosecutor Jenny Sullivan, has also been promoted to series regular. When we last saw her, she was working against Tasha. In the upcoming chapter, she is on a mission to prosecute Jabari's murderer, but the guilty party's defense attorney Saxe will use every trick in the book to make sure that doesn't happen.

There's also Alix Lapri, who appears as Effie, Tariq's former Choate classmate. She will work with Tariq and Brayden to grow her drug business, which will highlight where her loyalties lie.

Larenz Tate, who plays NYC Councilman Rashad Tate, has been promoted to series regular.

"After sampling a taste of power, Tate won't be satisfied until he has the full meal, but he'll have to decide what he's willing to sacrifice for his seat at the table," reads his character's synopsis (via Deadline).

Rapper Redman will guest star as Theo Rollins, the older brother of lawyer Davis Maclean (Method Man).

The official character description reads: "Theo Rollins used to run the streets with his little brother, Davis MacLean. But now, they sit on opposite sides of the law with Theo serving an extensive prison term, and Davis, off his win in the Tasha St Patrick case, now the biggest defense attorney in New York City.

"They both know, had the past played out differently, Davis could be locked up alongside his big brother, but Theo questions if the guilt's enough for Davis to keep his promise."

Frank Whaley (Interrogation, Luke Cage) has also joined the cast and will play a character called Lucas. He's not a main character, but Deadline has described him as "heavily recurring".

As for Tariq's mum Tasha (Naturi Naughton), she's now in a protection program, which means we'll probably be seeing a lot less of her.

"Tariq was made a choice to save his mum, but it's a choice that he doesn't have total control over because he doesn't know where she's going," Kemp told Deadline. "So, I think what will come up in the next season is his lack of ability to contact his mother, to be with his mother, and to have that connection.

"Part of the journey of season two is absolutely going through and making decisions without the benefit of someone to call."

Leon Bennett

In an interview with Decider, Rainey Jr also revealed which character he'd like to make an appearance: "I'd say Kanan (50 Cent) for sure, because Kanan is a big part of why Tariq is how he is, and why he thinks the way he thinks. I feel like if Kanan comes back, it would be pretty dope to see what he thinks of Tariq right now. You see how he kind of gave him some game and told him what she should be, or what the right thing to do is."

Power Book II: Ghost season 2 plot: What will happen?

"In the second season, Tariq's journey with the Tejada family will get even more complicated – and more dangerous – as he begins to understand the man he's going to become," said Kemp in a statement.

Chatting to Entertainment Weekly about the next chapter, she added: "Well, obviously Tariq has committed a huge murder and there's going to be a big response to that on campus.

"Where we had begun an encroachment of his drug life into his school life with the incidents that took place in episode eight with the attempt on his life and the body in the pool, now his whole drug life is crashed into his campus life in a real way.

"And Tariq definitely feels like he's walking around as a ticking time bomb. His relationships are going to get more complicated, and while that's all happening he's still got a love life."

So quite a lot, then...

Starz

Chatting to Entertainment Weekly about how that decision will affect his character, Rainey Jr said: "It will affect Tariq, because everything Tariq does affects him. A lot of things that he does, it's more because he has to do it just to survive. It's definitely going to mess with him. Nobody really wants to kill, so he's definitely going to have to learn to live with that."

Kemp also said that ethics is going to be a central theme in season two, telling Deadlinethat "Tariq's class, the Canonical Studies class, moves into an ethics unit".

She elaborated: "Is there such a thing as real greater good, right? Is there a greater good?

"Does the end justify the means? I mean, that's a question that we're always asking in Power but when you're asked to write a paper about that or speak about that in class and you have committed some pretty heinous acts in order to achieve your end... that's one I could address and say that those are some things that are coming along for sure."

Wikipedia list article

Power is an American drama television series created by Courtney A. Kemp that premiered on June 7, 2014, on Starz.[1] The series follows James St. Patrick (played by Omari Hardwick), nicknamed "Ghost", owner of a popular New York City nightclub, and a major player in one of the city's biggest illegal drug networks. He struggles to balance these two lives, and the balance topples when he realizes he wants to leave the drug ring in order to support his legitimate business, and commit to his mistress.

During the course of the series, 63 episodes of Power aired over six seasons, between June 7, 2014, and February 9, 2020.

Series overview[edit]

Episodes[edit]

Season 1 (2014)[edit]

High-level drug dealers James "Ghost" St. Patrick and his childhood friend Tommy Egan open the popular and exclusive Truth nightclub in New York City as a means of laundering their drug profits. Ghost, who lives in a luxury penthouse with his wife Tasha, their three children and Tasha's mother, focuses on running and marketing the nightclub in hopes of becoming a legitimate businessman. The more violent and less polished Tommy concentrates on the drug operation, which he sees as the priority. At Truth, Ghost reconnects with his long-lost childhood sweetheart, Angela Valdes, who is now a successful lawyer and, unbeknownst to Ghost, an Assistant United States Attorney (AUSA) seeking to take down Ghost and Tommy's drug supplier ("connect"), Mexican cartel chief Felipe Lobos. Ghost and Angela fall in love and begin a secret affair, while Tommy starts a relationship with Holly Weaver, a Truth server and habitual thief. Meanwhile, a mysterious female hitter, "Pink Sneakers", disrupts the drug network by attacking several couriers, killing distribution leader ("primera") Anibal Santalises, and seriously injuring another primera, Carlos "Vibora" Ruiz. Unbeknownst to Ghost and Tommy, their imprisoned mentor Kanan Stark ordered the hits, but Kanan convinces Ghost that Ghost's friend and protege Rolla is responsible, causing Ghost to kill Rolla. In the season finale, Pink Sneakers tries to kill Ghost during a party at Truth, but accidentally shoots Holly instead, then escapes. Truth is shut down by the police.

Season 2 (2015)[edit]

Truth reopens under the ownership of scheming nightclub mogul Simon Stern, who forces Ghost to work for him with the possibility of Ghost buying back the club when it hits a certain profit target. Stern then sabotages Ghost's efforts and falsifies records to prevent any buyback. Kanan, newly released from prison, bonds with Tommy while plotting with Ruiz and the new primeras Drifty and Vladimir "the Serb" to kill Ghost and take over the drug distribution network. Kanan holds a grudge against Ghost, who he claims set him up for the arrest that sent him to prison for years. Ghost tries to kill Pink Sneakers, but Kanan's prison protege Dre Coleman mortally wounds her first. Before she dies she tells Ghost that Rolla didn't order the hits, which makes Ghost suspect Kanan.

Tommy and Ghost learn that Angela is an AUSA pursuing Lobos with a federal task force. Angela investigates Tommy, who she believes is the direct connection to supplier Lobos, but becomes suspicious after Holly, recovered from her wounds and under pressure from the FBI, tells her that the connection "Ghost" is James St. Patrick, not Tommy. Realizing that Tommy is more loyal to Ghost than to her, Holly leaves him with the secret help of Ghost, who wants her gone. Tasha, upset by Ghost's cheating with Angela, forces him to move out, but when she learns Angela is an AUSA, tells Ghost to continue the affair to protect Tasha and his children. Tasha starts her own affair with Ghost's driver Shawn, who is also Kanan's son. Kanan orders Shawn to kill Ghost, but after Shawn fails to do so and then rejects Kanan as his father, Kanan kills Shawn.

When Lobos comes to New York to meet with Ghost and Tommy, ostensibly to collect money but also planning to kill them, Ghost manipulates Angela into having the FBI raid the meeting before Ghost arrives. Lobos and Tommy are arrested, but defense attorney Joe Proctor gets Tommy released due to Angela's prosecutorial misconduct, based on evidence Ghost stole from her apartment. Although she beats the misconduct charge, Angela now knows that James is Ghost, a major drug dealer and killer, and she breaks up with him.

Ghost finally reclaims ownership of Truth and two other clubs after proving that Stern is an embezzler hiding assets from his estranged wife. Ghost then eliminates his own distribution network, making it look like the work of a rival Mexican cartel. He kills Drifty and Vladimir, pays off Ruiz to disappear, and recruits Dre to work with him legitimately. Ghost tries to have Lobos murdered in prison, but Lobos survives with serious injuries. Ghost and Kanan fight to the death in a basement, ending with Ghost apparently killing Kanan and burning his body. However, fire investigators later note that someone broke out of the basement, suggesting that Kanan may have survived.

Ghost tells Angela he will be a completely legitimate businessman going forward, and the two reconcile. Angela is threatened by her ex-boyfriend Greg Knox, an FBI agent whom she exploited to conduct her investigation and then ruined in order to protect Ghost. Holly returns to Tommy and tells him that Ghost forced her to disappear, causing Tommy to mistrust Ghost. Tommy then gets a call from Lobos, who was smuggled a phone by Angela's boss Mike Sandoval, the head of the Lobos Task Force. Lobos orders Tommy to kill Ghost or else Lobos will kill Tommy, Holly, and their dog, as well as Ghost.

Season 3 (2016)[edit]

Believing Lobos is dead, Ghost moves in with Angela and pursues a lucrative deal with hotel magnate Karen Bassett to put nightclubs in Bassett properties worldwide. The Lobos Task Force, led by Mike who is secretly Lobos’ mole, decides to keep Lobos’ survival secret and prosecute him as “John Doe”, but Angela reveals to Ghost that Lobos is still alive although this could get her the death penalty. Tommy cuts off contact with Ghost and rebuilds the drug organization with the help of Holly and Tasha. Holly finds out about Lobos’ threat and pushes Tommy to kill Ghost for their own protection, but Tommy cannot bring himself to do it. Holly finally orders a hit on Ghost without telling Tommy. When Tommy finds out, he flies into a violent rage and strangles her to death, regretting it afterwards. Ghost survives the attempt on his life due to the quick action of Dean, a personal security guard he hired. Tommy and Ghost reconcile.

Greg, who had been suspended from the Lobos Task Force for stalking Angela, gets back on the task force by finding Ruiz and offering him a deal to testify against Lobos, hoping he will also implicate Ghost and Tommy, but Angela thwarts the plan. Mike arranges for Lobos to escape during a prison transport, but Tommy and Ghost kidnap Lobos during the escape attempt and kill him. Angela suspects Ghost of murdering Lobos but cannot find evidence of it, due in part to Tasha providing Ghost with an alibi. Greg, who was with the transport and was nearly killed himself, insists that someone on the task force must have leaked information and believes it was Angela.

Meanwhile, Kanan, who survived Ghost’s attempt to kill him, recovers from his serious injuries in Washington, DC under the care of his criminal cousin, the corrupt DC police officer Laverne “Jukebox” Garner. Kanan returns to New York to take revenge on Ghost and get control of Ghost’s drug network. Kanan coerces Dre into introducing him to Ghost’s teenage son Tariq, who is angry at his father for deserting the family for Angela and has begun to act out. Kanan befriends Tariq, tells him about Ghost’s criminal past, and encourages him to skip school, drink, steal, and transport contraband.

Finally free of Lobos, Ghost discovers that his security guard Dean is actually Milan, a brutal Serbian connect who threatens Ghost’s family and Angela and forces Ghost and Tommy to work for him. Milan grooms Tommy for a high-ranking position but plans to kill Ghost after he signs the nightclub deal with the Bassetts, so that Milan’s organization can take over the Bassett clubs. In order to protect Angela from Milan and from his own drug activities, Ghost breaks up with her without telling her the real reason why. Heartbroken and facing an internal investigation in the wake of the Lobos murder, Angela returns to Greg, who resumes their affair but continues to secretly investigate her and Ghost. Ghost plots to use Ruiz to bring down Milan by sending him into a meeting with Milan wearing a recording device given to Ruiz by Greg, but Tommy kills Ruiz and berates Ghost for making plans without consulting him. Greg recovers the recording device worn by Ruiz, which captured information incriminating Tommy and Ghost, but cannot be used in court because Greg's investigation was unofficial and did not follow proper procedure. Ghost breaks into Greg’s apartment looking for the recording device, but cannot find it. Despite all his attempts to link Angela and Ghost to Lobos, Greg discovers instead that Mike was Lobos' mole, causing Mike to kill Greg in Greg’s apartment and frame Greg as the mole. Angela investigates and finds Ghost’s fingerprints on Greg’s window, left by Ghost during his recent break-in.

Ghost throws a major party at Truth to celebrate finalizing the Bassett deal. After the contract is signed, Ghost and Tommy, who has turned Milan’s own organization against him, take Milan from the club at gunpoint and kill him. Tasha receives a text from Kanan, who has kidnapped and drugged Tariq with the help of Jukebox and another corrupt police officer, Raymond “Ray Ray” Jones, demanding a ransom for Tariq's return. Kanan and Jukebox plan to kill Tariq anyway after receiving the ransom. Upon returning to Truth, Ghost is confronted by Angela, who handcuffs and arrests him for the murder of Greg Knox.

Season 4 (2017)[edit]

With Ghost arrested and unable to pay a ransom, Dre pays off Kanan, Jukebox and Ray Ray to let the unconscious Tariq go free; the ransom demand to Tasha is passed off as a practical joke. Held without bail for the capital murder of Agent Greg Knox, and under investigation for alleged RICO violations, Ghost struggles to maintain the façade of a legitimate businessman in prison, while Tommy struggles to control the drug network and Dre secretly schemes to take it over and deliver it to rival suppliers, the Jimenez cartel. Ghost’s fellow inmate Tony Teresi, an aging mob capo and hitman, blackmails Ghost in order to get in touch with Tommy, later revealing to Tommy that he is Tommy's father, whom Tommy's mother Kate claimed was dead.

Mike Sandoval plants evidence to frame Ghost for Greg’s murder, but Angela begins to have doubts about Ghost’s guilt and ends up testifying in his defense, resulting in all charges against him being dismissed. She continues to investigate and eventually discovers that Mike was Greg’s killer and Lobos’ mole. Mike is arrested and Angela informs Ghost’s lawyer Terry Silver, hoping that Ghost and Tommy will kill Mike to prevent him from revealing their involvement with Lobos. Teresi has Mike killed in prison at Tommy’s request. Angela is promoted to the supervisory position formerly held by Mike.

Upon his release, Ghost discovers that Tasha, whose accounts were frozen during the investigation, accepted a large loan from Simon Stern to pay the family’s bills. As payback, Stern forces Ghost to be his partner in a real estate development that requires a Black owner. Against Stern’s wishes, Ghost supports Councilman Rashad Tate’s proposal to develop the run-down neighborhood where Ghost grew up. Tate helps Ghost develop his public image and forces Stern to change his partnership contract to benefit Ghost, but Tate makes clear that he expects favors from Ghost in return. Local waitress Maria Suarez recognizes Ghost’s voice from a TV interview as the man who shot her fiance (a hitman working with Pink Sneakers in Season 1), and goes to the Justice Department to tell her story.

Unbeknownst to his family, Tariq has been partying with Kanan and his crew and helping them commit burglaries. Jukebox pushes Kanan to carry out her original plan of kidnapping Tariq, making Ghost deliver a ransom and then killing Ghost and Tariq; however, at the last moment, Kanan chooses to spare their lives and kills Jukebox instead. Tariq helps two crew members carry out a home invasion robbery during which they murder the homeowner, putting Tariq’s life in jeopardy as a witness. Ray Ray kills the crew members and then searches for Tariq, finally catching up to him outside his school. Tariq hides while his twin sister Raina confronts Ray Ray and is shot dead. Tariq tells the police and his parents that he didn’t see who killed Raina, but goes on his own to take revenge on Ray Ray. Kanan figures out that Ray Ray killed Raina and tells Tommy and Ghost, while Tasha learns Tariq’s whereabouts from a phone trace ordered by Angela. Tommy, Ghost and Tasha all arrive just as Tariq kills Ray Ray, and help him cover it up. To protect Tariq, Tasha tells Terry Silver, with whom she has been having an affair, that she killed Ray Ray. Angela, who suspected that Ray Ray killed Raina, begins investigating his murder.

Dre disrupts the drug operation by having distributor Julio murdered, burning a shipment of product, and killing primera Father Callahan, all in furtherance of his plan to take over as connect under the Jimenez cartel. Dre promises Kanan a place in the new network, but instead tries unsuccessfully to have him killed. Kanan informs Ghost and Tommy of Dre’s duplicity, which is confirmed when all three see Dre leaving a meeting with the remaining primeras and Alicia Jimenez. In the season finale, Kanan, Ghost and Tommy join forces to go to war with the Jimenez and take down Dre.

‘Power Book III: Raising Kanan’: Starz Unveils New Trailer & Premiere Date For Prequel Series

Starz has unveiled a new trailer and premiere date for Power Book III: Raising Kanan. The early ’90s prequel, set in South Jamaica Queens, is set to premiere July 18 on Starz.

From creator and showrunner Sascha Penn, Power Book III: Raising Kanan takes viewers back to the ’90s and the early years of the now-deceased Kanan Stark, portrayed in Courtney Kemp’s original series by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.

A prequel to the original Power franchise, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, is a sprawling family drama that revolves around the coming of age of Kanan Stark; Ghost and Tommy’s mentor, partner and adversary, who ultimately dies in a hail of gunfire in the eighth episode of Power’s penultimate season.

When we catch up with Kanan here, though, he is the fifteen-year-old only child of Raquel “Raq” Thomas, a cocaine distributor with an emerging network of dealers across the city. Much like the original Power, Raising Kanan explores themes of identity, violence, and legacy, but it is also a deep dive into the very pathology of family; the unique, complicated and fraught dynamic between parent and child, mother and father, brother and sister.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan
stars Patina Miller as Raquel Thomas, Kanan’s queen pin mother, Mekai Curtis plays the titular character of Kanan Stark, the cast also includes Omar Epps as Detective Malcolm Howard, London Brown as Marvin Thomas, Malcolm Mays as Louis “Lou-Lou” Thomas, Hailey Kilgore as Jukebox, Joey Bada$$ as Unique, Toby Sandeman as Symphony Bosket, Shanley Caswell as Detective Shannon Burke, Lovie Simone as Davina Harrison and Quincy Brown as Crown Camacho.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan
is executive produced by Kemp through her company End of Episode and Jackson through his G-Unit Film and Television. Penn is the creator/showrunner of Raising Kanan. Also executive producing are Mark Canton through his Atmosphere Entertainment MM, End of Episode’s Chris Selak and Danielle DeJesus, Shana Stein, Bart Wenrich and Kevin Fox with Rob Hardy executive producing and directing the premiere episode. Lionsgate TV produces the series for Starz.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan episode 10 release date – Full release schedule

We’re at the season finale of Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and the penultimate episode certainly set the stage for an explosive end to the prequel’s first run.

We got our first real glimpse of how Kanan Stark became the ruthless murderer we saw in Power, as the latest episode saw the aspiring drug dealer carrying out his first hit job.

The victim wasn’t just anyone – it was Detective Malcolm Howard, meaning Kanan unknowingly murdered his very own father.

This means the show is likely losing one of its biggest stars in Omar Epps, which may complicate plans for that Detective Howard spin-off the actor previously revealed he would be open to.

“Oh yeah, for sure [I’d be interested in a spin-off], if done the right way, you know,” Epps told RadioTimes.com. “I don’t know if we can go into Howard’s origin story. It would just have to be something that’s unique and something that could be fun and something that would catch people off-guard.”

Kanan committing patricide has been one of the show’s biggest twists, living up to executive producer and narrator 50 Cent’s comments that the prequel will still surprise fans despite the character being explored thoroughly in the original Power.

“I wanted to surprise people with how good it is after they felt that they already know,” told RadioTimes.com. “You feel like you already know but it gets better, because you feel like you already know what to expect from Power but there’s new stuff.”

The rapper also added that the show would resonate with those who come of age in the ’90s and early 2000s in particular, saying that they “grew up through that era so they understand the nuance of the things that are happening in the show and I believe that they’re going to be really passionate about it”.

There’s still potential for more surprises in the finale also as Lou-Lou recovers in hospital and Marvin makes amends with Jukebox – here’s everything you need to know about Power Book III: Raising Kanan.

How to watch Power Book 3: Raising Kanan online

Power Book III: Raising Kanan began on 18th July 2021, with new episodes airing weekly on Sundays until the finale on 26th September.

As with Power Book II: Ghost, the series will be available on Starzplay, which is available to subscribe to via Amazon Prime Video for an additional £4.99 per month.

The show took a brief mid-season break after episode five, but has since returned to airing weekly with only the finale remaining. The tenth and final episode of season one is titled ‘Paid In Full’ and will be released on Starzplay on Sunday 26th September.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan cast

Starz

The main role of Kanan is set to be played by Mekai Curtis (Disney XD’s Kirby Buckets), playing the younger version of the character made famous by 50 Cent in the main series.

Long before he became the cold-blooded fan-favourite we saw in Power, Curtis told EW that in this prequel Kanan is a “kid trying to figure out who he is in life”.

“He’s trying to figure out how to move and adjust and be there for his family while also being there for himself,” Curtis said. “So that’s a lot of what you’ll get to see Kanan go through and struggle with in this first season, compared to how you find him so cool, calm, collected, and a little more ruthless when we find him in the original Power.”

Other actors signed on to appear in the Power Book 3: Raising Kanan cast include Malcolm M. Mays (Snowfall), Omar Epps (House), Hailey Kilgore (The Village), Patina Miller (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay) and Natalee Linez (Siren).

Power Book III: Raising Kanan plot

The series is set in the 1990s and serves as a backstory to the character of Kanan Stark, who was played by 50 Cent in the main Power series.

As with the original Power there is set to be a strong focus on family, particularly on Kanan’s relationship with his mother, ruthless queen pin Raquel “Raq” Thomas.

Curtis told Entertainment Weekly that Kanan’s mother “is his world”, adding: “One of the biggest themes that you’re going to see throughout the show is a mother’s love for her son, a son’s love for his mother, and what they’re willing to do to protect each other.”

We’ve seen Raq go to extreme lengths already to protect her son already – arranging the murder of his friend D-Wiz to spare Kanan’s life, and doing her best to keep him out of her turf war with rival dealer Unique.

However, the family theme will also continue with a character from the original Power – Kanan’s cousin Jukebox, who is set for a large role in the spin-off series. As hinted at previously, the prequel will show how Kanan and Jukebox have been close since they were kids, making it all the more heartbreaking that Kanan eventually murders her in Power.

Jukebox will be pursuing her singing ambitions in the show, as well as forming a relationship with Nicole, a wealthy student at the local prep school. However their relationship ends in tragedy after Kanan makes a mistake – suggesting that Jukebox will have a rather rocky relationship with her cousin before the two become partners in crime as shown in the original series.

Kanan’s uncles Marvin and Lou-Lou also appear in the show with a key storyline in season one exploring their complicated relationship with Raq, as the two brothers attempt to assert their dominance in the family business in which Raq is the unquestioned Queenpin. Marvin is keen to take Lou-Lou’s role as Raq’s right-hand man – while Lou-Lou attempts to juggle his responsibilities in the family business with his own venture into music.

House star Omar Epps – who himself had his breakthrough in the ’90s – plays Malcolm Howard, a detective dedicated to cleaning up the dangerous New York neighbourhood. Little is known about the character at first other than a mysterious past with Raq – though as the series goes on he is soon revealed to be a key role in Kanan’s upbringing…

While the series starts in 1991, it’s possible that as time progresses in the show we could eventually see younger versions of other characters from the franchise, including Tommy and Ghost.

Star Mekai Curtis told EW that the prequel series would be “a Power that you haven’t seen before” due to a focus on the ’90s time period – an era that would influence the tone as well as the fashion.

“It was just a different time period; the clothes, the music, just the overall atmosphere, and mindset were a lot grittier and grimier,” Curtis said. “You don’t really get to see that sort of thing on TV anymore.”

Power Book III: Raising Kanan trailer

The full-length trailer was released in June 2021 – only a month before the show’s premiere – and teases Kanan’s first foray into drug dealing amidst several ’90s references.

The first teaser trailer for the series was released in December 2020, with 50 Cent providing some narration over images of the cast sporting some very ’90s fashion.

He says, “You already know how my s**t ended, this is how it started. This is my story. This is a Southside, Jamaica Queens story.”

And fans can get a closer look at the series by checking out the music video for 50 Cent’s theme song, titled Part of the Game.

Will there be a Power Book III: Raising Kanan season 2?

Yes! Before the first season had even begun, US network Starz commissioned a second season of the crime prequel (via Entertainment Weekly).

“One season isn’t enough to tell the coming of age story of Kanan Stark and his mother, Raq, a fierce and successful woman who is a force of nature,” said Starz president and CEO Jeffrey Hirsch. “The anticipation globally for more of the Power Universe made it clear that the Kanan story needs to continue.”

The continued raising of Kanan means we may well see younger versions of Power characters such as Tommy and Ghost down the line – as well as some more ’90s fashion and music as the show progresses through the decade.

Creator Sascha Penn told EW that the total number of seasons for Power Book III: Raising Kanan was “to be determined”, but added that an end point was in sight, saying: “What we have thought about is that by the end of however many seasons this is, you will have a full and complete sense of how Kanan Stark became Kanan Stark.”

However, it seems that this spin-off could also have its own spin-off, as star Omar Epps has revealed that he is open to his own solo series based on his character Detective Malcolm Howard.

“Oh yeah, for sure [I’d be interested in a spin-off], if done the right way, you know. I don’t know if we can go into Howard’s origin story. It would just have to be something that’s unique and something that could be fun and something that would catch people off-guard – I’m a big proponent of that when it comes to creativity,” Epps exclusively told RadioTimes.com.

“It’s following your vision but, when it comes to something like this, it’s unique right? People have been like, ‘Oh it’s like a Marvel Universe’… But as long as it’s authentic and it has legs, yeah I’d be open to something like that,” he said.

However with Detective Howard seemingly meeting his maker in episode nine, options for a spin-off based on the character are limited – unless, of course, we rewind even further back in time for another prequel.

Power Book III: Raising Kanan is available to watch now on Starzplay. Looking for something else to watch? Check out our TV Guide or visit our Drama hub for more news and features.

Power season 7 release date: Will there be another series of Power?

Kemp told Deadline: “It feels to me like Power has not ended, and then I’m back in my old office working on the spinoffs and we’re shooting Book II.

“So, you know, 50 said #PowerNeverEnds, and it really has felt that way.”

The cast and crew have also previously suggested Power wasn’t ending even if it looked like the show was wrapping up.

Kemp’s vision seems to suggest Power was simply a chapter in this sprawling story with many more stories to be told.

Much like HBO series The Wire, Power also seems to be branching off into different spheres including the political arena with Power Book IV: Influence which will follow Rashad Tate (Larenz Tate) and his rise to the top.

Also, Power Book IV: Force will follow Tommy after he left town and headed for California to start a new business and leave behind New York.

Details about casting are starting to emerge now for Force with many actors joining Sikora in the fray. 

Fans have been speculating about Book II with some people wondering if Cash will return to kill Tasha in revenge for his mother LaKeisha Grant's (La La Anthony) death.

The show was originally going to have Angela originally killing her boyfriend Greg Knox (Andy Bean) but this was changed, while the stars have revealed the real reason she was murdered.

Naturi Naughton has also spoken about Power Book II and whether Ghost faked his own death.

She also addressed why Tasha named Tommy in court at the end of the first episode of Ghost, while others thing she could accidentally reveal Tariq was the one who pulled the trigger.

Some are wondering if Tariq could hand himself in as the pressure starts to mount.

There are also questions over newcomer Rico Barnes, who featured in the last couple of episodes.

Power season 6 is available to watch on the Starz app and Netflix UK now
